How to fix Holes in uPVC Panel Above Doors?

Postby GavZ » Tue Oct 11, 2016 2:18 pm


I'd appreciate any help and advice on offer. I have a pair of UPVC doors that have a panel above them screening what looks like a beam. Unfortunately my football mad son has been taking pot shots at them and so there are now loads of holes in them.

What I really need to know is what I should be searching for in terms of material to fix this. I had assumed I'd need another sheet of uPVC and some sort of adhesive/sealant to attach it, but my preliminary searches haven't been very successful. I've upload a few photos to try and show what I'm talking about but even a name of what it is I need to get to replace would be a start.


Thanks in advance,
